News Article about the city he'll be in...

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: News Article about the city he'll be in...
By Mrsheidi on Tuesday, April 18, 2006 - 10:15 pm:

I'm sure you guys are sick of me posting about this! I'm just worried about my husband...like always. I hate not talking to him every day. ugh.
Anyway...The more I look up the city of Qalat, the more dangerous I'm thinking it is. I'm always hearing about Iraq being so dangerous, but I wonder if the other countries are getting in the news for things like this. At least it seems like the "good guys" are winning.

Heidi, we are here for you. No one is sick of your posts. Post away! :)

I know this may seem as a small bit of comfort for you right now, but when my dh went to Beirut and the Gulf War, the internet wasn't even invented yet, not to mention previous wars; so we had to wait for actual letters or sparse phone calls.

You will be able to communicate with your DH frequently. However don't wait for the emails, phone calls, etc. Try to live your life like he is at his regular day job. I know this may sound silly but it will help you to focus on the day to day instead of your dh away and in harm's way.

It su*** that your dh had to leave but I know he has the utmost respect from all of us moms and his friends/family/ community.

I think of you everyday. How is your mom doing?

NO ONE is sick of your posts! We're all thinking of you. Try not to think of the "what ifs"...easier said than done, I know.

Keep on posting, no one is getting tired of them. Hope you hear from him soon.

Heidi, I think about you and Connor all the time, so I am always glad to see a post from you!

I'm keeping your husband in my prayers, daily. No advice but I'm keeping good thoughts coming to your family every day. I am so grateful to people like your husband.

Just thought about you yesterday and wondered how your mom is doing. I hope all is working out well.
Hugs to you.
Love, Nicki

Mom is doing ok. I think her schizophrenia is showing though. She is not taking her meds and when we left for a week, she got really upset and waited by the front door for us every day! :(
But, we visited yesterday and both of them were happy!

((Heidi)) It must be so hard. Post away! We are all thinking of you and your family.

I'm glad you have Momsview to vent your fears and frustrations and excitements. My prayers are with you and your dh.

Heidi, I think of you and your dh often. Please don't feel like we're tired of hearing about your dh or your worries and stresses. We're here for you. {{{Heidi, Scott and Conner}}}

{{{hugs}}} post away...we love hearing updates and I know it helps you temedously to post these things, it did me, but please stop torturing yourself. I know exactly what you are going through and I tortured myself with looking on the internet and watching the news every chance I got during his first Iraq deployment. It was horrible. The second deployment I tried really hard not to watch the news and search the internet for articles on his unit and location. During the second deployment, I voluntered with the unit, the kids schools and I signed myself up for 12 units at the college. I was so busy I barely had time to sleep. What I'm trying to get at is-keep yourself super busy. Don't sit around and wait for the emails and phone calls. If you are worried about missing his call, forward all your calls to your cell, I did. My email is in my profile if you need to talk.
